Yeah thats the one from eBay, Pretty good, but you need to keep switch qr axles. And i know he had problems with a frame that had 3d dropouts and the mounts needed bending to fit,
looking at pictures on google the ikea one, handle switches round to fit on the bike.Posted 8 months ago
I could do with a cargo trailer as it would be handy for a few reasons – collecting wood from the forest for the chimnea, nipping out to the shops for small amounts of shopping, possibly used for overnight camping trips.
I’d like something that’s easy to fit to the bike but doesn’t leave anything attached to the bike when not in use – I would probably use it on a couple of different bikes. So something that would drop onto a longer qr maybe?
I’d like the cargo box to fold flat if possible.
Doesn’t need to be big and burly. Does such a thing exist? Everything I’ve looked at so far looks a but too big for my needs.Posted 8 months agoshedbrewedMember
From @Pyro’s post/pic the hitch looks the same as on the Halfords child trailer I use. Flat dropouts are needed as the tow hitch for the bike side is QR’d to the frame.Posted 8 months ago
The bike end is this http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bike-accessories/child-bike-trailers/halfords-spare-clip-and-bracket
The trailer end is very good, with essentially a large spring providing a UJ for movement. I’ve had the trailer on the back at over 30mph with no problem.highlandmanMember
Bob copies from the far east are grand; I’ve a steel one that Edinburgh Bikes used to stock a few years back and it’s been bomb-proof, outlasting the aluminium Bob designs significantly. Fits on the 29er easily and takes a few seconds to swap the QR over. One big advantage of the ‘single wheel at the back’ low deck design is how well it tracks the bike on techier trails, I’ve had no difficulty dragging mine around a tour de Cairngorms a couple of times.Posted 8 months agohighlandmanMember
This is very similar indeed to my Edinburgh bikes trailer, if quite a bit more expensive..Posted 8 months ago
I’ve yet to see one that works with 12mm rear dropouts.
I’d not seen that one, looks like it might put a lot of load on the swingarm/upright weld without any triangulation?
Alternative either this is:
b) a decimal point error
c) a bargain
But at £35 I’m tempted to have a go at 3D printing a chainstay mount for it (i’m letting nothing cheap and chinese anywhere near my rear QR).Posted 8 months agostumpy01Member
I asked a similar-ish question a couple of years ago and got some good responses.
See if there’s anything in here that might help:
I didn’t end up getting one in the end, although I do still want to. Just one of those things that I never get round to buying!Posted 8 months ago
It’s amazing what goes on on the Clunch Road! I’m a bit confused by that site though, has the guy sold the design to Carry Freedom?
I like the bob yak but I’m not paying bob yak prices as it’ll be occasional use only. I do like the eBay one with the ‘suspension’, but don’t want suspension. That without the stupid springs would be ideal.Posted 8 months ago
Can I bump this thread w.r.t. 29r wheels?
Has anyone used / tried this – http://www.bobgear.com/bike-trailers/trailer-forks – to upgrade for 29″ wheels?Posted 3 months agosam_underhillSubscriber
I bought the large carry freedom y-frame this summer. It’s really stable, easy to connect / disconnect and it’s a super flexible platform.Posted 3 months ago
I’ve got a big foldable box for doing the weekly shop and when you need to move awkward stuff I just use the flat bed and lash stuff on.
It’s not a cheap option, but it’s absolutely brilliant!
